Supermoon from our Backyard

The weather is getting colder in Slovenia and every morning, there’s a thin layers of ice on the grass. I can totally feel the winter coming! Time for hat and gloves.

Going out in the cold is not exactly my favorite thing to do. I rather stay warm and cozy. Although, there’s an exception every once in a while, right?


Last night was cold and cloudy, but it was also the Supermoon. A full moon is called a Supermoon when it coincides with the Moon’s closest approach to Earth, it gives the impression of a bigger and larger moon. Despite my dislike for the cold weather, I just had to go outside and witness it with my own eyes. (Fortunately, we didn’t have to go very far to find a spot far from the “city” lights – our backyard did just fine!)

According to the astronomers, yesterday’s full moon was the biggest, closest as well as brightest  since 1948! The next Supermoon that will be this close will only be in 2034.

Unfortunately, the sky was very cloudy and it hid the brightest of the moon. We rarely take photos in the evening or at night and need a lot more practice. 🙂

In Slovenia, it is believed that the full moon – polna luna is affect immensely the behaviors of Slovenians, although there is no proven scientific reasons. Believe it or not?

Until next time,
